Katie Hopkins Thinks Your Kid Has A ‘Low Class’ Name, So No Play Date For You
Katie Hopkins, British reality star, thinks she’s being incredibly honest by admitting she weeds out her children’s friends by over analyzing their names. In reality, she’s too stupid to realize she’s an insufferable snob and certain thoughts should probably just stay in her head. She was on “This Morning” yesterday sharing her views about steering clear of children from what she perceives to be “lower class” families:
I think you can tell a great deal from a name. For me there’s certain names that I hear and I think, ‘Ugh’. For me, a name is a shortcut of finding out what class that child comes from and makes me ask, ‘Do I want my children to play with them?’
I don’t even know where to begin with this. This woman is proudly perpetuating some mythical class system and obviously raising her children to believe they are better than others because of it. How sad.
I do judge children by their names.
It lets me make very quick decisions about whether these are the sort of children I want my children playing with.
There’s a whole set of things that go with children like that and that’s why I don’t like those sorts of children.
You don’t like these sorts of children? Â Did you actually just say that? What is wrong with you? Thankfully, Holly Willoughby, one of the morning show hosts eventually shut her down. She asked Hopkins if she felt her opinions were limiting her children in any way. Â Hopkins replied: “Yes.”Â The co-host then asked: “Why would you do that? Why would you do that?” Eventually, Willoughby realized she was wasting time arguing with someone who was dumb as a box of hair, and just said,Â “Oh stop, stop right there.”
Hopkins is pushing these views on her children and not letting them mix with kids she deems “working class.” Thanks for trying your best to raise little classist a-holes. There are plenty of children who grow up to be amazing human beings in spite of their parents. I truly hope this happens for your kids.
